Introduction: Why is It Good to Reunite with Your Ex?

Everyone has a different answer to this question. It is hard to pinpoint why we would want to re-connect with our exes. One reason could be so that you can try and win them back or for the closure that comes from having seen each other for the last time before either one of you moved on with your life, but not all reunions are created equal. And sometimes, the reasons have nothing to do with you or your ex (at least directly) and everything to do with other people.

But if you have a chance to reunite with your ex, sometimes it’s just not about you or them—it’s about someone else. Longtime friends, for example, often push for exes to get back together because they don’t want either of you to be unhappy or lonely. And family members may also encourage a reunion if you’ve been divorced for a long time and have never really moved on.

10 Really Good Reasons You Should Reunite with Your Ex

Even if you did not go through a particularly good relationship with an ex, it is important to know why you were in a relationship with them in the first place. The answers may be helpful for your future relationships and/or your current ones. Here are 10 reasons to consider reuniting with your ex:
1-Friends are friends no matter what: For the majority of people, it is important to have a circle of friends on whom they can depend. Your ex may be one of them. It is important to look at the possibility that you have been too focused on past hurts and pain and have become judgemental. Especially with previous marriages, it is hard to know that a person you once loved may still have feelings for you. And even if they do not feel the same way, there is no harm in trying to find out.

5 Really Bad Reasons You Shouldn’t Reunite With Your Ex

If you had to choose only one reason not to reconnect with your ex, it is likely you have one of these scenarios. If a specific reason applies to your situation, then definitely consider that reason, but if it is not relevant, then you should move on. Here are five bad reasons not to reunite with your ex:

What Not to Do:1. You’re Too Hurt To Try Again. This can be a motivator, but if you’re still reeling from the breakup and are not emotionally healthy enough to try again, then it’s not a good idea.

What to Do:2. You’re Fine Not Trying Again. This is a better approach, but if the pain of the breakup is still too fresh, then you should be cautious of hurting yourself again.

What to Do:3. You’re Doing Better Without Her. Even though you broke up, it does not mean that you are past each other forever. You could still end up back together, but it’s a dangerous gamble. If you look bad to the other person and he/she leaves, then you could end up worse off.
